An Oval-Shaped Face
Oval-shaped faces are slightly longer than they are wide, similar to the shape of an egg. This versatile face shape means that there are a variety of beard cuts that will perfectly fit your face shape — which might make it even harder to choose which style you want to try! Try a full beard, anchor, or long stubble beard.
A Round-Shaped Face
On round-shaped faces, the forehead and chin are around the same size. This means that instead of focusing on your cheeks — and rounding out your face even more — you want to find beard cuts that accentuate or highlight your chin. Opt for a triangular-shaped beard or a beard that’s shorter on the cheeks and becomes longer towards the chin. Looking to go bolder than that? Try a goatee chin strap!
A Triangular-Shaped Face
On a triangular face shape, the widest part of the face is at the jaw with the face narrowing at the forehead. This leaves triangular-shaped faces with a defined, angular jaw. That means that beard cuts such as a balbo, goatee, or a chin strap with a mustache move the focus away from those sharp jawlines and create a good balance on the face.
A Square-Shaped Face
Like with a square, a square-shaped face has a forehead, cheekbones, and jawlines that are the same width but with a more pronounced jawline. So what beard cut pairs well with the face shape? Opt against a full beard and instead try a balbo, goatee with a mustache, circle beard, or a chin strap to bring the focus to your jaw and complement your cheekbones and forehead.
